Diversity Management

Training Results

We are regularly providing female employees with the following training throughout the group’s companies: skill training for deeper involvement in business management for female core employees (such as logical thinking, presentation skills, leadership theory), and general career development training for female employees. Additionally, we are providing manager training on how to develop female subordinates. In this way, we have been involved in awareness-raising activities on both sides.

Diversity Management Training for Managerial Employees

Diversity Management Training for Managerial Employees

This is a training program for managerial employees including managers, general managers, and directors concurrently serving as department heads, in which they understand diversity better and learn points on how to develop female employees.
This is a day-long training program conducted every year inviting specialized outside instructors. The morning session is conducted mainly in a classroom to introduce advanced companies to diversity in Japan and abroad and share activities of female employees.
The afternoon session is designed to have a series of workshop-style discussions in several groups, where the trainees prepare "development plans for female leaders" and "scenarios for active female employees." Through intense debates on how to develop female employees who will play a major role in our future business, the trainees will identify challenges and work out possible solutions.
We heard the trainees say, "We should give female subordinates many more opportunities to make them feel needed," or "We should relook at the division of roles to broaden the areas where female employees can work more actively." As they stated, this training program is making considerable progress in raising awareness among management.
As a team, Morita Group is committed to the development of managerial employees "who can evaluate the ability of employees regardless of gender, while understanding women-specific changes in life stages," "who can develop female employees depending on their individual skills," and "who can create a workplace environment in which female employees find it easy to work."

Career Development Training for Female Core Employees

Career Development Training for Female Core Employees

This is a training program for female core employees in their thirties to forties with the aim of developing "human assets" from which future leaders will be selected.
This training is conducted mainly in workshops in four sessions over a total of eight days. With leading specialists from related fields invited as instructors, the trainees in this program learn various business skills including "logical thinking," which helps them learn how to think logically, "presentation," which helps them improve the ability to develop strategic proposals, and "leadership," which helps them learn how to lead the Group to be successful in business. Furthermore, the trainees also learn mind control skills to gain business capabilities, which are essential to leaders, such as the "psychology of mentality and motivation.”
"We learned the importance of challenging," and "We acquired how to identify challenges and how to solve those issues," said many trainees who could now do their work from a higher perspective, which helped motivate them a lot. This training program has turned out quite a few section chiefs and assistant managers, who are now playing leadership roles, proving the program to be a practical one that backs up female employees' career paths.
With the ways of working and our business becoming increasingly diversified, we are convinced that the development of female leaders who can think logically, develop strategic plans, and have the ability to negotiate earnestly enough to attract people is one of our most important business strategies for a bright future.
